iSchool Public Libraries Initiative

The iSchool Public Libraries Initiative

The iSchool Public Libraries Initiative (IPLI) is an intellectual home for iSchool faculty and students who are interested in researching public libraries, applying their research to public libraries, or using public library data in their research.

The IPLI supports research with the goal of providing more information to public libraries about what they and their communities need. The Initiative uses existing and original data in its work; drawing on public data about libraries as well as Initiative-originated qualitative and quantitative data to investigate the state of public libraries.
